organizations that have distorted islam, or falsely used the banner of islam to engage in their destructive acts. and we've got to be clear about that. we've got to be clear about that, because if we're going to successfully reduce the terrorist threat, then we need all the allies we can get. the folks who are most interested in a war between the united states or the west and islam are al qaeda. that's what they have been banking on. we want to be clear about who the enemy is here. it's a handful of a tiny, minority of people who are engaging in horrific acts. and have killed muslims more than anybody else. the other reason it's important for us to remember that is because we have got millions of muslim-americans, our fellow citizens in this country. they're going to school with our kids. they're our neighbors. they're our friends. they're our co-workers. and, you know, when we start acting as if their religion is somehow offensive, what are we saying to them? i've got muslims who are fighting in afghanistan. in the uniform of the united states armed services. they're out there, putting their li

in washington, thank you. >>> joining us now to talk about the primaries and what happens in november are democrat strategist tonya acker in los angeles and republican strategist dan bartlett in austin, texas. good morning to you both. >> good morning, harry. >> good morning. >> dan, let's talk about this. you got delaware. you got kentucky. you got alaska, utah. one after another after another. are all of the tea party victories good for the republican party? >> well, when you have a situation like with mike castle getting beat in delaware it gives you pause because it's going to be very difficult if not impossible for republicans now to gain that seat in the united states senate. having said that, though, harry, the intensity gap that we are seeing between the two parties this election cycle is mainly being fed by the tea party movement on the republican side so net-net it's still a gain. the prospect of taking over the house of representatives would not happen without this vibrant activity within the tea party so while you have the types of anomalies like we saw last night with mik

congress isn't listening to us. they decided to speak. so the people spoke with a very i would say uniformed voice in a race in particular in delaware that you mentioned. people identified mike castle, with a candidate that j obama agenda, which is out of control spending, tax increases that are planned and job-killing bills. they've said no, they don't want it. whereas, christine o'donnell represents the new kind of candidate that is listening to the people. who is clearly said she opposes spending increases. she won't be voting for any tax increases. she is also going to repeal very bad bills like the government take over of health care. she is pro jobs that's what are seeing this fall. people who are looking at the candidates and saying, who will best reflect what i believe? clearly, they are hearing that message from tea party candidates. >> sean: what do you make of the establishment's slash and burn tactics leading into the primary tuesday and reaction of some after? even mike castle's reaction. wouldn't call her. from the night she won, saying he wouldn't endorse her the day
